Elena Kagan's sexual orientation has been a topic of much debate and little factual information. Harvard Law Review named Kagan as a lesbian, but she has never made a public statement about her status, nor has her private life been open to scrutiny.

In a May 11, 2010 interview in Politico, Kagan's former law school roommate, Sarah Walzer, told journalist Ben Smith that Kagan is definitely a heterosexual. According to Walzer, "I've known her for most of her adult life and I know she's straight.... She's dated men when we were in law school, we talked about men - who in our class was cute, who she would like to date, all of those things. She definitely dated when she was in DC after law school, when she was in Chicago - and she just didn't find the right person."

Other friends and classmates confirmed Walzer's testimony.

Apparently, rumors about Kagan's sexual orientation had been circulating on gay blogs for months before a conservative CBS News site blogger reported the information as fact.

While those familiar with the Supreme Court nominee's personal life have been emphatic about Kagan's sexual orientation, they have also expressed concern about offending gay friends by implying there is anything wrong with being a lesbian. Either way, Kagan's private life and orientation are irrelevant to her ability to perform as Solicitor General or as a Supreme Court justice.

No, Elena Kagan is not, and never has been, married. Although there are few details available about her personal life, friends claim she simply never found the right person.
